Lupita Nyong’o Endorses Local Comedian and Kenyans Can’t Keep Calm



International actress and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o has lit up the internet after she endorsed a local comedian by the name Elsa Majimbo.

The young Kenyan has been making funny comedy videos on social media and in turn, has amassed a huge following of over 80,000 fans.


Despite being praised by the likes of South African rapper Casper Nyovest, the comedian has had a tough time trying to gain praise from Kenyans.

A few hours ago, Lupita Nyong’o literally came to her rescue by publicly proclaiming on Twitter that Elsa’s comedy has been cracking her ribs.


Since the endorsement, twitter has blown up with many people including Diana Marua congratulating the young comedian. Truly tables do turn.

Some people, however, were less than pleased at the attention Elsa has been getting since the endorsement. They have also come out to express the displeasure.
